Memphis Flash: Elvis’ Duds


Private Presley


This belt might be my favorite Vegas clothing item.


Worn at his Madison Square Garden press conference, 1972


The white suit, white shoes, Elvis wore to sing “If I Can Dream” at the end of the NBC special


Blue and white


Preacher man. Elvis wore this red suit for the “Saved” production number in the NBC special


Black and white


Boxing robe from “Kid Galahad”


The American Eagle jumpsuit, “Aloha From Hawaii”, 1973


Bell bottoms


The black leather suit worn by Elvis in the sit-down jam sessions in the NBC special.


Sunburst


He wore this in “Viva Las Vegas”


The American Eagle cape, worn during the “Aloha From Hawaii” concert in 1973


Those (male) critics who express dismay and embarrassment about the jeweled jumpsuits in the 1970s clearly don’t remember that Elvis chose to wear this at the age of 22.
